I have talked to some people who want their kids to "Court" - wait for God to bring them their mate, rather than date. I don't see how this is any different than not going to a doctor and waiting on God to cure you. If we can use means, one means of finding a suitable spouse is dating, within godly boundaries. Can anyone explain the other position to me in a way that makes sense?

I believe God provides our spouse through dating. I heard that in ancient times parents would arrange marriages for their children with other parents. Either way, the lot is cast into the lap but the whole disposing thereof is of the Lord.
If the Traducian Theory of reproduction is true (I believe it is), then the names of the elect written in the Book of Life before the foundation of the world, would need every ancestor of every person ever born to be none other than who it was...going back to Adam. Or else the elect would not have been born.

What is the difference between two people coueting each other or two people dating each other?
